Mark

I was a teenager during the turbulent 1960’s. I liked rock and roll music, sports cars, keeping up with current events and other normal things. But underneath, I was seriously and desperately looking for the truth. During my years at the University of Texas at Austin, I became less and less happy, more and more angry and increasingly hopeless. At the last my lifestyle brought me to a near death experience which jolted me out of my entrenched atheism. I experienced the biggest shock of my life: there is a spiritual world. There is a God. There is also a Devil. I had been utterly on the wrong side. But when I found that to be the deepest truth that I had been searching for, the answer was clear. I wanted no part with the Darkness. I wanted to throw in my lot with the good God, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham.

Months later I finally found some young radical Christians who could answer the question I now had. Who was Jesus? They answered me from the Bible, as well as the dedication and consecration that showed in their lives. From then on I not only believed in God. I believed also in the Messiah who’d been promised for thousands of years, Jesus of Nazareth.

1972. London, England

I dedicated my life to full time Christian service and soon moved to Europe in the early 1970’s to reach my own generation with the message of the New Testament. I ended up spending 35 years abroad, living in around 25 countries and just having a wonderful life, lived for God and for others.

There’s so much more to tell and I’ll try to do that in some of the articles that will be posted on this blog. A special interest for me became the subject of Bible prophecy and in recent years I’ve been working on a series of videos on that subject. But at least this is a start towards explaining what God has done in my life and the path He has led me in.

Sincerely, Mark McMillion

  1. Mark, it is always interesting to hear another’s testimony. I found yours easy to read & inspiring. Very nicely presented, like the other material you’ve prepared: “meat in due season” (Matt 24:45b) – minced enough for those with “milk-teeth” yet nourishing for those who are of age! Well done!
    I’ll be praying for your ministry!

    • Thanks, GBY; yes it’s important to hit somewhere in the middle concerning “milk and meat”. Seems like there are a lot of things around that are so advanced that most just-getting-started Christians won’t really understand. I guess that’s pretty much the audience I’m aiming to reach and write for.

    • Thanks, so glad to know that the things I’m sharing here are a blessing to you. It’s an inspiration to me to know that what I have been doing is a help to others. Thanks so much.

  2. Hi Mark
    Am helping with a bible study on Daniel at our church and happened to look up your video of Ch 8.
    From some of the questions you ask, it indicates that you do not hold to a pretrib rapture eschatology or have I misunderstood?
    thanks

    • That’s right, I believe that believers will be here as witnesses for Him through the Great Tribulation and that the rapture will happen after the 42 months of the reign of the AntiChrist.

  3. Thanks Mark
    Just wondering then how you explain God pouring out His wrath on His bride the church. I am of the view that that it will be poured out on His now rejecting Israel to turn them to Christ as Zehariah says “They will look on Him who they pierced…” What a great and faithful God who fulfills every dot and tittle. For His names sake.
    Also one of the churches in Revelation mentions them being spared from the wrath to come.

    • We are not appointed to wrath. (I Thes. 5:9; Romans 5:9). But the Great Tribulation is not the same as the wrath of God. We must through much tribulation enter into the Kingdom of God (Acts 14:22). Tribulation and wrath: not the same.

  4. Thanks but I believe the GREAT TRIBULATION is a specific time when the wrath of GOD is poured out on the earth. “the day of vengeance of our GOD”

    • The great tribulation and the wrath of God are two separate events. It is so important that we, the body of Christ understand this. Should this happen in our lifetime many will fall away I believe because they have been taught the Lord will rapture them out. I try to speak this truth of scripture in love, but it falls on deaf ears.

  5. Do you have an article on the Sat/Sun Sabbath issue? I would really like to get your take on it ? Please direct me to it !
    Thanks

  6. Well said Mark! I remember you from the good old days. I’m glad there are still some of us who haven’t bought into the political correctness mantra! It is a battlefield of the mind. Keep up the good work. GBY! -Greg
